Woodgate left out of Tottenham Premier League squad

Tottenham defender Jonathan Woodgate has been left out of their 25-man Premier League squad.

Manager Harry Redknapp decided to omit the injury-plagued defender, who he recently revealed was fighting to save his career due to a groin problem. Woodgate made only three appearances last season and has not played at all since November.

Specialist surgery in both America and Australia proved unsuccessful and Redknapp believes the player is in danger of having to retire.

Also omitted from the Spurs squad submitted to the Premier League today was goalkeeper Ben Alnwick, with new loan signing Stipe Pletikosa now providing back-up to Heurelho Gomes and Carlo Cudicini.
